Referrals

 

DiaryDirect Referrals from individuals, families, childcare centres, pre-schools and schools are welcome.

 

A referral from your GP is not required unless you are registered with the Enhanced Primary Care Program and wish to claim some of your speech pathology sessions from Medicare. Please note that the Medicare sessions do not cover an initial assessment which is usually required. They are only for therapy.

 

If you are not sure whether you need to see a speech pathologist, please contact us for discussion or a developmental checklist, which can be posted or emailed to you. All enquires will be handled by a speech pathologist directly to ensure that the most appropriate service is negotiated.

 

 

Appointments

 

Appointments will be organised on availability. After hours and Saturday appointments are available. The length of initial consultation or assessment will vary according to need but will be discussed prior to that consultation taking place. A client information form is to be completed either before or on the first consultation day. The cost of initial consultations or assessments includes a full written report and a program and recommendations where appropriate e.g. for class teachers, other professionals involved and carers.
